    we praise the people elected for the division office and the unions. It would appear pastor Papu has not been elected would that be a good observation? May God prosper His work in the division and i hope we will all carefully observe the dictates of the scriptures in view of the times we are living.

    “It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when cerebrating victory when nice things occur. Take the front line when there is anticipated danger; then people will appreciate your leadership” Mandela once said. Never to ignore the ultimate shepherd in post-modern and dot com world

    could you please update your website regularly, we are a movement but it seems there is no movement on information, how come we still have Dr Maphosa as Exec Sec on the website?

    When we visit this site we expect to see current/up to date information.

    Now that we are in the season for inductions there is information we need is Ps Khumalo still the Youth Director.
